Exciting Announcement! I’ve Joined the Board of She’s The First!

I could not be prouder than to share that I’ve joined the Board of Directors for She’s The First. You have read about She’s The First here on The Causemopolitan a few times – most recently about my “sweet sixteen x2″ birthday campaign to raise money for girls in Guatemala with bi-coastal birthday parties in New York and Los Angeles.

I was passionately looking for an organization I really believed in and where I felt my skills could be best utilized. I have quite a few organizations that I’m really passionate about – and a lot of those all of you know about read about here – but it’s been so thrilling to really focus on She’s The First and this gigantic year of acceleration for the team.

I want to give a huge thank you to so many of my friends, family, readers and supporters for supporting my birthday campaign and also for supporting She’s the First last year. Together we raised $5,000!

Because of all of our efforts together, 15 students in Solola, Guatemala are sponsored in 2012, through a She’sThe First partner organization Starfish One by One. 15!!! That’s incredible. Go to shesthefirst.org to see year-round updates on how the girls are doing–including video footage from a volunteer trip to Guatemala this spring.

If you’d like to receive monthly updates subscribe to the She’s The FIrst newsletter. You can also connect on Facebook, Twitter, and at upcoming events!

So what’s next? Our 2012 goals include:

If you’d like to get more involved on a personal level just let me know – would love to have you on board!
